Hope I didn't get your hopes up or anything, but it's not a new comic page, but rather a little update (since the News page is so out-of-the-way nobody seems to notice it, and the last page's comment is entirely too long to add new shit to). I'll remove this ASAP.
I'm really sorry that I haven't been updating lately. I usually try not to go more than 5 days without an update, and we're currently at 7, and I feel really bad about it. As you probably guessed, I'm really busy with a lot of things right now, and I'm also working on something for 4KH that I hope is going to work out right and on-time.
So I guess this is just a memo to apologise and tell you that there might not be a new page for a couple of days, but when there is, it will (hopefully) be really good. If not... well, I'll post another apology.
Also, thankyou everyone who made a SmackJeeves account + added 4KH! I'm over the moon with the turnout and I'm sure it'll help make organising events in the future a lot easier.
Also, as Sailor Titan suggested I do, I'm going to use this page/note as a sort of legal disclaimer. When I ask for your input or ideas under the pretext that they will possibly be used later in 4KH, if and when they do appear, you have, in effect, given me that idea. While I normally will try and credit people when that idea appears in the comic, and I won't try to claim that I came up with it if I didn't, you have voided all rights to be prissy and squeal "YOU STOLE MY IDEA!!!!!". If this bothers you and you WOULD like to reserve that right, then comment so on this page and I will not use any ideas you suggested to me in 4KH. This is your last chance.
And now, in lieu of another page, replies!
SpiritHime - I would've loved to put Ami in a suit (perhaps with a scar...?) trying to win over Zoisite, but I just don't think it'd work in the scheme of their relationship in 4KH. Glad you found other things that tickle your fancy, though!
Wait, Jewish Zoisite? Ahahaha, I'm in love. Though not quite as much as with sweet Welsh rugby-playing Kunzite. Are they still a couple?
whittertwitter - Hi there! Thanks for reading + commenting, and welcome to the front line!
Mm, poor Nephrite doesn't seem to be doing very well, but you think Jadeite has a chance? Interesting.
That's an interesting suggestion, but I'm not sure if Mamoru is really on speaking terms with Kenji. xD It's certainly a viable threat, though.
Last Haven - Thanks! Ami looks kinda weird in the overhead shot but most other things look ok. I'm trying to improve, ahahaha.
Ami's outfit is actually from an episode of SuperS when all the girls were dressed up in their most modern, fashionable clothes for some reason. Isn't she cute, though? She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn for some reason.
Yes, I do get the feeling there's going to be a lot of obsessing on Ami's part... but, just Ami's...?
Jadeite figures his best bet is to appeal to her like some kind of puppy.
Amazon Trio are totally my favourite non-main characters. I can't wait to stick them in, it's gonna be ballinnnn'.
Pia-chan - Thankyou for reading + commenting again, glad to have you!
Yeah, I remember that scene with Ami! There was a similar scene in Stars when everyone thinks Usagi is getting a love letter from a girl, but it's really a letter she wants her to give to Yaten. The girl says something like "Why would I give a letter to you?" and Ami mumbles something like "I always thought Usagi was that kind of girl..." and everyone dogpiles on her again. At the end of the first series she also says it "might be nice" to have a "passionate romance" too when she gets back. Moar dogpiling! I want to have something like that in 4KH too, I'm just not sure where.
Ah, I haven't listened to all of the sound dramas, or at least, if I did, I didn't really pay a whole lot of attention to them (since I'm not really fluent in Japanese). Though maybe I should listen again. Those do sound hilarious, though, and they remind me of those video interviews where all the voice actors got together for a Christmas party. xD They were all buddy-buddy with Zoisite's VA... I haven't seen it in a while, though.
Thanks for the comment! I love 'em long, ahahaha.
BLL - I sure hope so. xD
A puppy and a kitty? A... pitty?
Well, yes, Jadeite's always been a bit of a pity...
I think Jadeite's general approach is to appear genderless so she gives him at least half a shot. D:
Chibi Jennifer - Thankyou! I'm glad it made sense!
Celeste Goodchild - Yesss! Come on down this nostalgia trail, we've got tiny cupcakes with 'EAT ME!' on them.
Aww, thanks. Hope I can keep churning it out!
Roses Ablaze - Ah, yeah, I remember. Thankyou in advance, then! ♥
Oh, I'd totally forgotten about Phobos and Deimos, but I really like both of them! I'll see what I can do. If I can find a place to put them in, then I definitely will!
Elianthos - Very. B)
Poor pup!Jad is close to being neutered. D:
I'll find some place for pelvic thrusting, don't you worry. x3
Dimande and Setsuna? Well, that would sure make for some passionate, passionate hate!sex.
I've seen Setsuna and Galaxia before... possibly from you. xD But I'm not sure if I want to put Galaxia in this comic, for a variety of reasons.
You'll just have to wait and see. e we
Having the Starlights as merely cameos seems like a good way to go, actually.
VO1 - Actually, despite the name and the so-far main characters and the fact that it /really really/ looks like it, 4KH was never meant to just be about the Four Kings and their bet. D: Its core purpose was to bring some under-appreciated characters (like the villains) into the limelight and have a story that focuses more on them and almost puts the girls in a 'side character' bin for a little while. I'd always intended for there to be lots and lots of characters. Though I've now become attached to the four kings, so I guess they'll always be the main characters, in a very large cast. Same as Mamoru.
I hope you still trust in me, because I'll try my best to make it not-cluttered and worth reading. ):
Spirit-Hime (again!) - Babble away, I'm sorry there haven't been any updates. xD
Ah, thanks! High praise from a fanfic writer. ♥ I hope to have a lot more of him in the story, because he totally needs some more exposure.
-whips his pants off-
That was my thinking with Jadeite exactly!
Awww, grizzly bear Nephrite. Ahahaha. Awwwwww.
Dammit that wasn't how I was meant to react
RARRGGHHH GRIZZLY BEAR NEPHRITE RARRRGGGHHHH RAAAAaawwww. ♥♥
4KH isn't exactly Anime Canon... I get the feeling I'll have to write another 'guide' about what parts of each canon 4KH uses. It's really a ridiculous patchwork quilt of plotlines. x _x;; But, yes, Kunzite + Zoisite were in a relationship in the DK in 4KH. And I hope you'll be interested to see how it goes down (teehee sex joke)
Ahaha, Ami and the internet. Maybe she's just completely desensitised to it all? "Oh, goatse again. -click-"
Thankyou, I was hoping to. And I hope I can keep that going for a while yet.
Thankyou again to everyone who's still reading this thing! I hope to be updating ASAP! ♥
On the list of things I didn't need to see right before bed, that was one of them. D: Actually, I think I prefer the version with Robert Pattinson's head pasted on Usagi's.
LAWL. Oh. Wow. If THAT Zoisite and THAT Kunzite were together, I think. The world would explode just a tiny bit. Jewish Zoi is Zach from VO1's Economics (READ IT, IT ROCKS!) and Welsh Kunzite is Ceithin from Charlie Chalplin 2's Hooligans (READ THAT TOO, IT ALSO IS MADE OF WIN).
That is MY KIND OF EXPOSURE. Plz to be taking off Mamoru's pants in comic. One of the guys should pants him. That would be amazing.
See, Nephrite is one of those big fuzzy creatures that tries to be all growly and mean, but all he makes you wanna do is snuggle him.
So far, your canon-mixing seems easy enough to follow. I usually go manga canon and steal from the anime, you seem to go mostly the other way.
Uhm. No matter how many characters we get, I hope these five do manage to stay pretty close to the spotlight. I'll be pretty sad if I don't get to see Nephrite be his big grizzly self anymore. But I trust you, Frizzy. <3
*after bleaching her eyes* XD
glad to hear from you ^_^ .
Btw... I started thinking you're a male, but now I'd say you're female. Just a inkling XD. Would be funny if I'm completely wrong as well (would explain a ton about my female intuition >>;; )XD.
GalaxiaxSetsuna was never a ship I dealt with actively. I just stumbled on hints for it in yra's Out of the Abyss fic sequel on fanfiction.net XD.
While about Demando x Setsuna... even for crack purposes, not so sure the hate component of hate!fuck would last long. Because when you've been watching (and sometimes experiencing)every kind of events and people unraveling for millennia in the stream of Time you're bound to gather some sort of 'beyond good and evil' wisdom IMO ;DD.
Anyway, don't overwork if you can, take care of your Muse. We'll be waiting :).
